If that’s a style that spoke to both women, it’s really not an issue that they look similar. Katy’s ring definitely looks like a Katy ring, so if she loves it and doesn’t care about the slight similarity, I don’t. If it was the same ring, I find that a bit cringey, but it looks like he/they put thought into personalizing the details for her. I’m a fan of vintage styles so though I wouldn’t want this ring in particular, I do find the design to be pretty.

Also, I’m not super knowledgable about the Why behind jewelry pricing. Can someone please explain why this ring would cost 5 million dollars? Is it the rarity of the pink diamond? Flawless cuts? I’ve heard of $50k rings, which sounds like a ton to me, but HOW does it get THAT high?

I’m sure if Katy Perry was on this board, she will say, “He proposed to me with this ring.  It represents his love for me.  That’s all that matters.  He loves me and he picked this special ring for me.”

I am sure no matter what her ring looks like, I am sure she will love it because it was given to her with love.  With that said,  it looks like what Katy Perry would love to wear.  I think this is her style.  It suits her.  I’m simple and quiet, so this ring will not fit my personality.

I don’t like it. But all that matters is that she does. Good for them

I honestly like the ring but as a rhr not an engagement ring. The centerstone doesnt look like a fancy pink diamond to me…just something about the sparkle or refraction leads me to believe it’s most likely a ruby or very dark pink sapphire which is ok by me because I’m a July baby. Ruby’s of large carat weight and great clarity can be as expensive if not more expensive than diamond.

I think the rich reds and the vivid dark pinks are the rarest of the diamond colours. That may be why it is 5 mill. If it was a ruby I don’t think it would be anywhere near that kind of price.

I think it’s pretty, I wouldn’t want it as an engagement ring personally but if she loves it then that’s all that matters. I seriously doubt that ring is $5 million. He doesn’t have that kind of money to drop on a ring. It seems like a pink sapphire to me, not a pink diamond.

It’s so fun! I think it suits her well, and it’s different enough from the other ring, in my opinion. I doubt few people would complain if he got them both round solitaires; he put more thought into than that.

pearl311 :  Right…I agree totally and when news outlets usually report on engagement rings the value is greatly inflated or alot of times reported wrong and it happens quite often on E! News, Us Weekly,and People Mag.They also reported Lady GaGa’s ring was “pink diamond” and that ring is also a gemstone,likely a lavender,or pinkish/lavender sapphire or gem.

Not my personal style, but I don’t hate it. However, I definitely don’t think it’s a $5 million dollar ring and think it’s probably a dark pink sapphire. The thing is if you look at enough articles, it’s one dude from a diamond company giving his estimate and he’s the one who decided it’s a diamond. I have a little insight on how these sort of publications work, and what probably happened is the PR company for the diamond guy emailed all the tabloids, and they just went with it because it seems like a real source and it looks good for a headline. It’ll probably also never get corrected, because why would you?

I also read that if a pink diamond, the estimated value would be $5 Million, but if it’s a pink ruby, it would be worth approx $400,000-500,000, which sounds more accurate. Orlando Bloom isn’t worth the kind of money that buys a $5 Million ring. There hasn’t been an official announcement from either of them, just speculation as to price.

I think it’s pretty, and it definitely suits her – and thats what matters!

I think it’s hideous, but I prefer white diamonds (diamonds are my birth stone) and simpler, dainty styles versus over-the-top, costume jewelry looks. But I don’t have to wear it, so I hope that she loves it 🙂

Im not a fan at all.. Bad that its the same as his previous wife’s(yikes). Way too ugly to spend $5mil on. Unless she picked it herself, i think it was a terrible choice.
